    The perfect fit for our wedding

    We worked with Lauren Fitzpatrick and she was wonderful. She was very responsive to our requests and was very helpful with planning our wedding. The staff at the wedding was friendly and helpful. The ballroom was beautiful and fit our wedding group of 80 perfectly.

    My wedding day

    Having my wedding at Kimpton Hotel Palomar was the best decision I have made. All the staff taking care of us was wonderful. Erin, our event planner made the whole experience even better than what I had imagined. I had a small wedding but the experience that Erin created for us did not make the wedding feel small at all. I was thankful to have had my wedding at Hotel Palomar and so thankful for Erin.

  • Silver Sound Entertainment Wedding DJs

    Writing for Silver Sound DJs an endorsement for Hotel Palomar, I have had the experience of twice entertaining Hotel Palomar wedding receptions. This Hotel is very new and has a delightful modern style with a touch of the Art Deco style. The decorum and design is very sharp for a signature event, where you want to impress with very pleasant surroundings. The staff are friendly and helpful, they work in tandem towards a pleasing experience for the client and guests. I have also stayed at the Hotel as a guest, the Hotel rooms are of the highest quality, with super design and furnishings. I think this Hotel is one of Philadelphia's greatest secrets. I look forward to entertaining at the Hotel Palomar again. Paul Evans - President and Founder Silver Sound Entertainment.
